I feel like ever since I was a little kid, any time I got my hopes up, I was let down. Any time I ever said anything outloud about something I had my hopes up for.. I was let down.
Getting a car... let down
Getting a good job... let down

But if I don't say anything out loud then it happens... no one knew that we were car shopping or getting a car until after it happened because I knew I would jinx myself if I said anything out loud.
Then I was sooo excited about this job opportunity (the receptionist at the vet's office) and everyone knew about it and I had sort of made plans in my mind about how things would be after I got it and I didn't get it!

It's always been like that! I don't know if it's God saying... Don't say anything outloud, pray about it. Or if I just don't have any luck!!

I can think "Everything happens for a reason" "This means there will be a better opportunity" blah blah blah... that's easier said than done. I am so disappointed. I was really hoping for this job! I mean REALLY! It wasn't just going to help me, it was going to help other people.

I guess I will just move on from this let down and get ready to set myself up for another.

Here's a strange thought... I didn't talk outloud to many people about getting married and I didn't get let down! WOO HOO!! :) I love Jeremy

So is hope a good thing or a bad thing? Should I have it or keep it inside? If you don't have hope what do you have?

Here's a few definitions of hope:

1.the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best: to give up hope.

2.a particular instance of this feeling: the hope of winning.

3.grounds for this feeling in a particular instance: There is little or no hope of his recovery.

4.a person or thing in which expectations are centered

Fun weekend

That describes my whole weekend! Friday night we went to Outback Steakhouse and then went to the movies and watched "The Ugly Truth". It was a pretty good movie! Saturday we went to the Zoo! It was free, so it was packed! Just getting in was free, the Skyfari and the Imax theatre was cheap, so that's what we did! We watched a safari movie in 3-d and we rode the skyfari! It was a lot of fun! And a good way to kill a few hours! Then we went to Carlos O'Kelleys and had a late lunch. Then went to Wal-Mart and came home! I took a nap of course! What's a Saturday without a nap :) Then Sunday I went to church and went to work. Then we went to The Simon's and had Sunday Funday= supper (Indian Tacos) and True Blood! Very good episode.. can't wait for next week!!

My interview at The Mobile Vet Clinic went very well and I can't wait to hear back from them! It was on Friday so I didn't really expect a phone call today. That was weird.. as I was typing this I got a phone call from Hallmark lol I put in an application way back in February and they called to see if I was looking for a job lol But they are offering a part time job, not full time. So I turned it down. I already have a part time job...

WallE has been a brat lately. Chewing up toilet paper, and being a whiney butt!

I'm going to start posting jokes at the end of my blogs, because I want people to laugh! I love to laugh! :)

So I'll start with the family joke

A toothpick walked into a bar and ordered a drink, the bartender asked to see some ID and he said "I don't have any ID, I'm a toothpick!"

Happy birthday!!

Monday was Jeremy's birthday! We didn't do much. He wanted to go fishing while I was at work but it rained so he didn't do anything. After I got home we went over to "The Simon's" and had chili dogs (they were delish) and hung out. But he got to do a lot of stuff in the month of July and I say it's for his birthday every time :P He went golfing, which meant I had to give him his presents early (plaid shorts and golf balls), he went to DJ's dugout to watch the UFC fights with The Simon's. He's not a big birthday person.. I am though! And my birthday is in a month and a half!!

I think WallE is done sleeping with us. He will be on the bed but unless I'm petting him he is whining and so he jumps down and sleeps on the floor. I don't mind petting him, but it's a little hard to scratch daddy's back and pet WallE at the same time. So I let him whine.
Jeremy made the BEST porkchops the other day. And I mean the BEST!!! I mean.. it was the merinade but he can have the credit! :P I had to work so I couldn't help with supper, but they were definitely worth waiting for!!! =)
We had Blimpie's for the first time the other day (it was my first time, his second), it was very good! I hope we can choose them over subway?!

Jeremy is working 6 days straight this week. Lame!

I have been working quite a bit too (at Dick's and through TAPS). So hopefully we can start saving some money!

Other than that nothing is going on! Peace and Love!

Missing the family

Well I just got done looking through the pictures from 4th of July (they had a get together in Kansas at Richard and Bobbie's) for the second time. The Texas Byers were there, the A.C. Byers were there, the Matt Coldwell's, the Jackson's, the Bergs, PaPa and Bucka... it just makes me miss home!!! I wish we were there on the 4th. I miss our family! I miss my grandparents, and my grandma too. (I just saw the rest of the Dunbar's 2 weeks ago). I especially miss them on days that I'm not doing anything or when I'm stressing over stuff (i.e. bills... wishing I was a kid again!!!) like today. It just sucks, alot.
Don't get me wrong, Jeremy and I had an okay time on the 4th. It would have really sucked if we wouldn't have bonding time. But I guess that's what this life is all about right?! Missing stuff..
I guess I just wasn't ready for it and we have been up here for 7 months.
I'm hoping to land this new job soon (a receptionist for a vet clinic). If I do get this job I will be way less stressed, but I don't have it yet, so until then... stress time!!
I miss my friends. There are so many people that I used to talk to all the time, and now I barely talk to them at all! I have only made one friend up here, really. One that I would actually go hang out with. Talk about sucks! And she is so busy lately that we don't hang out anymore.

Christmas is my favorite time of the year, you get to see your family, eat home cookin' and get presents! But when less family comes to Christmas, and you get less gifts (that sounds greedy but that's not the point I'm making) you know something is wrong. Less people should mean more gifts, right? I've noticed this in the past couple years. First Donald left, then Chris, occasionally Jennifer makes it down. Sometimes the Oleson's go to Colorado instead. So less gifts just makes it more gloomy, on top of less people.

I guess I'm just whining in this blog. We'll call it getting some stuff off my chest. I really just wish I could wave my magic wand and change things, for a lot of people.

So I will leave you with this saying. I always used it in my speeches when I was running for an FFA officer:

Is it swimming weather yet?

This has been a lame summer! It hasn't been very hot, and I want to go swimming!

Well Jeremy hasn't been working weekends very long but it's nice to have him home! (Don't be fooled, he's not doing much housework lol) But it's nice to hang out with him!
His birthday is on the 20th, not sure what is happening but I want him to do something fun!

I still haven't found a new job, but I applied at Maurice's yesterday and they are hiring! So hopefully...!!!

WallE is still crazy!! He has been peeing on my plants, and killing them! I wish he would pee on the weeds and kill them!

August 8th is our first anniversary!! I don't think we are doing anything special. Also, August is the air show up here. We are pretty excited to see it (it's our first one). Richard and Bobbie are hoping to ride the motorcycle up here for that! And then September brings my birthday and a baseball game that we are hoping to catch with the family.. Royals vs. Red Sox (the Red Sox is the Coldwell family's team).

Nothing else is new... Just thought I'd update my blog.

Are we in Hannah Montana yet?

The Dunbar girls got here on Tuesday and we just hung out and had pizza for supper! Then Wednesday Jeremy went to work and we just hung out; had doughnuts for breakfast, hamburger helper for lunch and tacos for supper! "The Donalds" got here around 10 that night and since the kids had slept alot in the car they were pretty awake! It took Trista a while to warm up to us (I would be the same way... 4 girls just smiling at her, all trying to hug her and love on her! :P) But Braeden was showing us his shoes as soon as I opened the car door! lol They are just adorable! They loved the presents that Grandma Karen got them...

We had chocolate chip pancakes in the morning! Trista and Braeden were sitting at the table before Jeremy even started making them! :P And we had sandwiches for lunch before they got on the road! It was really good to see them!! I'm glad that my family got to come up and see my house too!
They stayed in South Dakota last night and tonight they are staying in Montana. Braeden keeps asking Mandy if they are in Hanna Montana yet! haha! He's adorable! He played football, baseball and golf with Uncle Jeremy. He really loved him! (Probably because it was a house full of girls except Uncle Jeremy and Daddy!
They are both great dancers! Braeden is a break dancer but I couldn't really get a good video of it, but I got a good one of Trista. I couldn't get the videos to upload, sorry. Happy 4th of July!!
